Featured Artist of the Week~ August 7th

Family committments have left my poor little blog a little lonely lately. I'm doing my best to keep a steady, but unfortunately slow, flow of new material here for my loyal readers.

Introducing the new fall line~ "Dreamy"

The time has finally come for me to introduce the first pieces of my fall line. First, I want to tell you a bit about what to expect.

The "Dreamy" line has been designed with rich shades of blue and splashes of purple, accented with creamy, natural colors. The "Dreamy" pieces have been created using lovely gemstones and Swarovski crystals and accented with sterling silver findings. Sodalite, Lapis Lazulis, Amethyst and Fluorite. Riverstone, Mother of Pearl and Aragonite. These are only the beginning.

I plan on listing the first few pieces from the "Dreamy" line in my Etsy shop tonight.
